The Good Wife 3.16 Review: "After the Fall"

By John Keegan and Henry Tran

thegoodwife-iconWhen Will took his punishment from the bar association, I was kind of expecting for him to miss the work and be one of those guys who couldn't function unless he was working. This episode makes a lot of hay out of that situation, sometimes amusingly so when it involves his two older sisters meddling into his affairs. Diane and her handling of the firm with Will out of the picture (temporarily?) then suddenly comes into sharp focus.

Being Human (US) 2.8 Review: "I've Got You Under My Skin"

By John Keegan

Being-Human-icon-being-human-us-17425916-150-150Things continue to march along their dark little paths in this latest episode of “Being Human”, and I couldn’t be happier. What makes it work is the relatively tight continuity; everything that happens in this episode ties back into elements that were introduced earlier in the season. That makes the drama a lot more involving, to say the least.

The Walking Dead 2.11 Review: "Judge, Jury, Executioner"

By John Keegan and Gregg Wright

The-Walking-Dead-iconI hadn't really realized until just this episode how much of a chore it's become for me to watch "The Walking Dead". Anymore, my appreciation of the show seems to be more a matter of begrudging respect than actual enjoyment. I tried to ask myself why this was, but the answers didn't come easily. What next came to mind was the realization that this has been the case for much longer than I would previously have been able to admit. "The Walking Dead" has coasted for a long time the sheer novelty of being a well-produced TV zombie saga. But does that mean that "The Walking Dead" is bad?

Spartacus: Vengeance 2.6 Review: "Chosen Path"

By John Keegan

spartacus-posterOn the heels of the previous episode’s fiery and bloody massacre, marking the apparent mid-point of the season thus far, it makes sense to take a step back and explore the depths of the fallout. In the process, the writers remind us of the cardinal rule of the “Spartacus” franchise: underneath all the sex and violence, the strength of the series is the character development.

Grimm 1.13 Review: "Three Coins in a Fuschbau"

By John Keegan

Grimm-2Those familiar with the game know that new television series, especially those for traditional broadcast networks, are generally given an initial 13-episode order. Based on the strength of those initial episodes (primarily in the ratings, if we want to be honest), the network can then pick up an option for the “back nine”. While “Grimm” received that honor earlier in the season, it’s pretty clear that the producers didn’t do much to adjust the original plans for the initial order.

Awake 1.1 Review: "Pilot"

By John Keegan and Henry Tran

awakereviewiconIt's easy to like "Awake" for its intriguing premise: Detective Michael Britten (Jason Issacs) is experiencing two different realities following a car accident. In one, his wife survived the accident, but his son did not. In the other, the reverse is true. Such a complicated overall plot could invite confusion from the audience. Judging from the pilot, that isn't a problem.

Merlin 4.9 Review: "Lancelot du Lac"

By John Keegan and Gregg Wright

merlinOne of the more well-known elements of Arthurian legend is the forbidden romance between Sir Lancelot and Guinevere. Given the generally family-friendly nature of "Merlin", this story isn't something I ever expected to appear in the show. But "Merlin" continues to surprise me, from time to time, with its unexpected forays into more mature subject matter. Still, I was a little apprehensive about how well they could handle this storyline and make it work.

Ringer 1.15 Review: "P.S., You're an Idiot"

By John Keegan and Henry Tran

ringer_iconThis show has settled into a particular pattern that strangely discards what makes for a compelling mystery in lieu of throwing out a bunch of twists that make little sense. This has been a consistent problem throughout the bulk of the season so I don't want to sound like I'm repeating myself. Both the plot and characters are completely lifeless, so it's hard to care about what happens in an episode. In fact, the episode caps off with a reveal that completely changes a core facet about a main character. It's jarring, and it put into question who I should even root for now to succeed on this show.

White Collar 3.16 Review: "Judgment Day"

By John Keegan and Gregg Wright

white-collar-posterAs the final episode of season 3 begins, a question clearly comes to mind. Will Neal's sentence be commuted? Or will Neal be stuck with the anklet for another two years? It all seems pretty clear cut. Even with Kramer involved. Agent Kramer doesn't trust Neal, so presumably, he wants things to stay exactly as they are. The stakes don't seem particularly high. Either Neal sticks around and solves cases with Peter, or he sticks around and solves cases with Peter while wearing an anklet. Still, the season and mid-season finales pretty much always impress on "White Collar", so my expectations were fairly high.
